Freud's Mexico is a completely unexpected contribution to Freud studies. Here, RubénGallo reveals Freud's previously undisclosed connections to a culture and a psychoanalytic traditionnot often associated with him. Freud found a receptive audience among Mexican intellectuals, readMexican books, collected Mexican antiquities, and dreamed Mexican dreams; his writings bear thetraces of a longstanding fascination with the country. In the Mexico of the 1920s and 1930s, Freudmade an impact not only among psychiatrists but also in literary, artistic, and political circles.Gallo writes about a "motley crew" of Freud's readers who devised some of the mostoriginal, elaborate, and influential applications of psychoanalytic theory anywhere in the world:the poet Salvador Novo, a gay dandy who used Freud to vindicate marginal sexual identities; theconservative philosopher Samuel Ramos, who diagnosed the collective neuroses afflicting his country;the cosmopolitan poet Octavio Paz, who launched a psychoanalytic inquiry into the origins of Mexicanhistory; and Gregorio Lemercier, a Benedictine monk who put his entire monastery intopsychoanalysis. After describing Mexico's Freud, Gallo offers an imaginative reconstruction ofFreud's Mexico. Although Freud himself never visited Mexico, he owned a treatise on criminal law bya Mexican judge who put defendants--including Trotsky's assassin--on the psychoanalyst's couch; heacquired Mexican pieces as part of his celebrated collection of antiquities; and he recorded dreamsof a Mexico that was fraught with danger. Freud's Mexico features a varied cast of characters thatincludes Maximilian von Hapsburg, Leon Trotsky and his assassin Ramón Mercader, Frida Kahlo, DiegoRivera--and even David Rockefeller. Gallo offers bold and vivid rereadings of both Freudian textsand Mexican cultural history.

Freud's Mexico is a completely unexpected contribution to Freud studies. Here, Ruben Gallo reveals Freud's previously undisclosed connections to a culture and a psychoanalytic tradition not often associated with him. This book bears detailed testimony to Freud's relationship to a country he never set foot in, but inhabited imaginatively on many levels. In the Mexico of the 1920s and 1930s, Freud made an impact not only among psychiatrists but also in literary, artistic, and political circles. Gallo writes about a "motley crew" of Freud's readers who devised some of the most original, elaborate, and influential applications of psychoanalytic theory anywhere in the world. After describing Mexico's Freud, Gallo offers an imaginative reconstruction of Freud's Mexico: Freud owned a treatise on criminal law by a Mexican judge who put defendants -- including Trotsky's assassin -- on the psychoanalyst's couch; he acquired Mexican pieces as part of his celebrated collection of antiquities; he recorded dreams of a Mexico that was fraught with danger; and he belonged to a secret society that conducted its affairs in Spanish.

Freud's Mass Psychology examines one of the key concepts in the theory of the psyche. Surprenant treats it as an epistemological issue rather than exclusively as a socio-political issue. Focusing on this neglected concept enables the author to raise anew the question of the 'application' of psychoanalysis, beyond a mechanistic understanding of this term and of Freud's writings. This study brings together important topics associated with psychoanalysis, recent French philosophy, and political thought. The original arguments that it develops should interest anyone preoccupied with the relevance of psychoanalytic concepts in philosophy and in related disciplines, notably in the field of literary studies.

From August 29 to September 21, 1909, Sigmund Freud visited the United States, where he gave five lectures at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. This volume brings together a stunning gallery of leading historians of psychoanalysis and of American culture to consider the broad history of psychoanalysis in America and to reflect on what has happened to Freud’s legacy in the United States in the century since his visit. There has been a flood of recent scholarship on Freud’s life and on the European and world history of psychoanalysis, but historians have produced relatively little on the proliferation of psychoanalytic thinking in the United States, where Freud’s work had monumental intellectual and social impact. The essays in After Freud Left provide readers with insights and perspectives to help them understand the uniqueness of Americans’ psychoanalytic thinking, as well as the forms in which the legacy of Freud remains active in the United States in the twenty-first century. After Freud Left will be essential reading for anyone interested in twentieth-century American history, general intellectual and cultural history, and psychology and psychiatry.

At once a portrait of two sisters—the rebellious, independent Minna and her inhibited sister, Martha—and of the compelling and controversial doctor who would be revered as one of the twentieth century’s greatest thinkers, Freud’s Mistress is a novel rich with passion and historical detail and “a portrait of forbidden desire [with] a thought-provoking central question: How far are you willing to go to be happy?”* *Publishers Weekly
